"I assume you can import HTML into a Sharepoint wiki (the wiki pages I've
looked at source for seem to be basically HTML). You can output HTML
directly from FM (although it's, IMHO, painful and limiting)."

I don't understand what's painful and limiting about saving Maker as HTML.  Ugly, you bet (so you have to fix that...  big deal).  But painful and limiting???  I use Maker HTML all the time -- With minor massages I get it to combine with DoxyGen output and create HTML or CHM help that's much more streamlined (read, 1/2 to 1/4 of the final bits) than RoboHelp or WebWorks, and much more stable to work with than RoboHelp.
